, but senator chuck schumer warns, taxes are coming. >> we're going to do the budget this year, and it's going to have revenues in it. all republican colleagues produced to that fact. lori: will republicans be receptive? steve more of the "wall street journal" senior economic writer joins me on the phone. what did you think about that? >> great to be with you. you know, the problem for chuck schumer is not so much getting republicans to get used to it. what about all those red state democrats in the senate. those are the people that are probably hyperventilating right now over what chuck schumer said if you look at the l.a. tour map, there are six, seven, or eight red state democrats that face reelection in 2014. melissa, i don't think too many of them are relishing the idea of voting for another tax increase. i wonder whether the chuck schumer, harry reid budget could pass the senate, even with just democratic votes because you have so many people that are up for reelection that are going to be very reluctant to stick their necks out and vote. by the way, as you know, we just had a $600 billi
york senator chuck schumer said over the weekend, and i quote, it is going to be a great opportunity for us because in our budget that we will pass we will have tax reform, which many of my republican colleagues like, but it is going to include revenues. a great opportunity to get more revenues. rehire texas. now, republicans say they are not taking this line down. they have been fond of reminding americans it has been for years, four years since the senate has written a budget. today they upped the ante with these calculations. democrats last above the way back in 2009, three pentagon's cabin built, not that we have the money to do it, just the time. a mountain climbing team could have made it to the top of everest and back 292 *. finally, we could have built all 179 miles of the keystone pipeline in that time the senate has been sitting on its budget riding pants. you get the picture. we have been waiting. they have been dawdling. bottom-line, and still could end up being the canary in the coal mine. one guest just they told me and other highly paid athletes might move out of the c
and fiscal cliff deal. senator chuck schumer making no secret tax hikes are coming. tracey much like phil mickleson enough is enough. >> eric enough is enough. i barely saw my paycheck. i am glad phil mickleson spoke out. he can leave and go to another one of his homes if the estate taxes are too high. >> i can't. unless we move the new york study is itio. i got to live near my job. i don't have that luxury. >> johnathon aren't we taxed enough already. >> we are indeed . states like new york and eric you are talking about 60 percent of your earnings. no wonder they are leaving in droves. high taxes, taxings are forced. high taxes prompt an exodus whether tiger woods or going back to the uk in the 70s, the rolling stonings. if you work and don't get to keep the product of your labor. you are a slave. california is more than 60 percent of the way there. >> wayne, you are in california. when are lawmakers going to get the message enough is enough? >> it is not a question of them getting the message. it is a question of spending. you have to cut spending in order to do this. you can't just me

're in a minority in the senate and chuck schumer talking about a budget but one that will have more tax increases in it. >> one of the good things is, it's hard to do things like that in the senate if you don't have a preexisting law that does that for you. so i think we're done with the revenue discussion. now it's about getting spending under control, and i think republicans are going to be united on this. i hope very united. because we need to save this country from the fiscal ruin that awaits us if we stay on this road. >> what do you think has happened to your fellow republicans. like they lost their backbones? >> i don't know about that. neil. i think that -- when i talked to my fellow senators, there's a really strong resolve to make progress on this front. we got big battles coming up. i think we have to make sure the savings of the sequester stays in play. and win the continuing resolution expires in march, we have to make sure a continuation doesn't occur. i think my colleagues on the other side of the aisle will be engaged in that fight to preserve those things but we'll be battling a
with the kind of credibility with the troops that chuck hagel has. >> chuck schumer, speaking of chucks, another chuck, ari, chuck schumer, as you know, a very strong supporter of israel, very tough on iran and its nuclear program. he had a private meeting with hagel, emerged strongly endorsing hagel, saying he'll vote to confirm him. you read that long statement that schumer put out on what he was told by hagel during the course of that private meeting. i rey sum that's reassuring. i assume that's reassuring to you. is it reassuring enough for republicans to vote to confirm him? >> no, i think hagel has broken the land speed record for the most apologies on a way to a hopeful confirmation. i've never heard of a nominee who has apologized to so many different people for so many different positions he's took over his career in order for him to get confirmed. i suspect this is more a confirmation conversion than anything heartfelt from hagel. that's why he's saying this. explaining away everything. if i were a senator, what i would do with hagel is keep my questions very short, make no speeches an

charles schumer is their unofficial leader. >> we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> reporter: their plan would grant illegal immigrants temporary legal status to stay in the country if they pass a criminal background check, pay a fine and back taxes and learn english. but they would have to get the back of the line for citizenship-- a process that would only start once border security has been improved with more agents and more drones. in 2007, republicans brought down a similar plan arguing it amounts to amnesty. but arizona's john mccain who championed reform then and now says he senses a major shift among his g.o.p. colleagues. >> you look at the demographics of this country and the rising hispanic population, we're not going to win races. >> reporter: you've tried so many times to pass immigration reform. what gives you confidence this time will be different? >> times have changed; americans

. meanwhile, speaking of nbc's meet the press yesterday, charles schumer says the senate will pass the budget for the first time in three years, but he stressed the plan will include opposition by new revenue. it would seem as though the markets are reading this favorably. talking about pushing this issue three months down the line, how positive of an outcome is that? >> i don't feel comfortable about that. my concern is you keep on pushing it back, the market feels good for the first couple of months, but then it knows it has the problem coming for june and then september. so i think this would be a very, very dangerous outcome. but probably lurking in the background for the u.s., as it lurk he in the background for the eurozone, as well, it's not just about the debt ceiling, they have to get the debt down. the debt ceiling may get raised, but it's not being tackled long-term. >> it seems every single time consistently we get the opposite outcome. which means some areas are consistent and it raises debt levels going forward. >> it seems to me as though we can't fix this one because democrati
holding the hearings on his nomination. he met with chairman max baucus and senator chuck schumer of new york. chuck schumer is calling him a shoe in as treasury secretary but today jack lew is making rounds with republican senators including top republican orrin hatch. one question republicans may bring up in his confirmation is his time as a top executive at citigroup from 2006-2009. while he was there the bank got slammed in the financial crisis back in 2008 when it got a $45 billion taxpayer bailout and jack lew made millions while he was at city including about a $1 million bonus for his work at the bank in 2008. tweet republican senators raised questions about his city jobs in previous confirmation hearing that the republican national committee hopes to make it an issue this time around and each it is three page press release two weeks ago when his nomination was announced by the president that aggregated articles about jack lew's work for citigroup, calling this from sub prime to prime-time. cheryl: peter barnes, thank you very much. it is going to be interesting. not going to be
's no way we'll get rid to balance, get rid of the 16 trillion debt in ten years, senator schumer in response to the debt limit talks said the gop, this is a quote, the gop is in full retreat on fiscal policy. >> you know, first of all, i don't think that's kind of remarks are very helpful. i mean, we have done about two and a half years of very consistent work focused on trying to get the fiscal outlook straight. you know, all the talk here in davos when i'm asked what's going on in washington, is washington finally going to get its act together to fix the fiscal chal snengs. >> we heard the president in the inauguration, what was his take? >> his speech was aimed at a political constituency. i assume he felt he needed to address. many of the things he mentioned aren't going anywhere in the u.s. congress and i think he knows that. i think that if we demonstrate the ability to move forward on some of the vexing issues that have really been dominating the news coverage, i think it will send a signal to so many people waiting to launch. as you've reported consistently, there's a lot
senator schumer, you cannot get rid of me, ma. remember, i'm still part of the .enate' and another picture from the inaugural parade, here's the time line. members of the sanitation crew that would clean up after the parade. staying until 6:25 to see the very end, including the sanitation way making their way through the parade. another tradition after the inauguration is the press service. we will be covering that here today on c-span. around 9:45 a.m. eastern time. c-span3, excuse me, the national press service. our coverage begins around 9:45 a.m. eastern time. back to your thoughts on the second inauguration of president obama. detroit, michigan, on our republican line. rob is up next. caller: good morning. people don't understand detroit its three counties. the core city which is about 5 miles by four miles has been decimated. of localuse government. i don't see anything the president will do to change our problems with the the problems that have been appropriated and mismanaged. i want to duck about the kids coming out of school. i'm a contractor. -- i want to talk about the kids. th
here in the senate. senator schumer, senator gillibrand, senator menendez, senator lautenberg; of course in maryland, you don't hear much about maryland, but one or two small counties were terribly affected in maryland. and senator cardin, senator mikulski have been just day in and day out working with me and with many, of course, trying to fashion a robust and smart response to the disaster on the east coast. we want it to be smart, mr. president, because the taxpayers don't want to waste money on things that don't work. and, of course, the survivors want it to be smart because they really need us to do our best work now. we can't be late and sloppy and bureaucratic. they've got churches to be built and faith-based organizations to get back up and running. their schools, libraries, most importantly their homes and their businesses. so this is a very important work and it's been difficult, because there are many different philosophies about how to tackle this. and i'm made my positions fairly clear on certain things like offsets, et cetera, et cetera. but today i really wanted
: that will be on c-span 3 today at 11:00 eastern time. rip mccarthy, representative schumer, the police chief in philadelphia. we want you to phone in to this segment. we are going to get into the politics of gun control. let people know that we have a fourth line for this particular segment for gun owners. we found the story in "thew new york times." as we get into the politics and what might be doable, the headline says -- would you think is going to be doable here on the hill? guest: he says he represents a state that has many gun owners themselves. when you actually talk to gun owners and nra members, they support by large majorities sensible and strengthening the current gun laws. what they support, 82% of gun owners, 72% of members actually support universal background checks. we are trying to keep guns and weapons out of the hands of dangerous people, criminals, and the seriously mentally ill. when you talk to people in west virginia, gun owners themselves want to be able to have guns in their homes. they also want to ensure that those guns do not fall into the hands of people who shou
of the leadership in the democratic side. senator schumer from new york who helped me in 1993 by headlining, or i should say leading the effort in the house of representatives which was successful. senators blumenthal and chris murphy, distinguished senators from connecticut who know first-hand about sexual weapons. you will hear from congresswoman mccarthy from new york. as well as congressman ed perlmutter from colorado who represents aurora. s also congresswoman esty who respects newtown. you will hear from commissioner charles ramsey of the philadelphia police department, the current president of the major police chiefs association who will speak about the display of weapons you see to my left. finally, we will hear from victims of recent mass shootings. i would like to recognize supporters who are here today. on the risers behind me we have police officers from several departments and i so thank you for joining us today.

i've been honored to join chuck schumer of new york and bob menendez of new jersey. on the republican side, john mccain of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, marco rubio of florida. pretty interesting group; right? pretty interesting political spectrum represented by these six senators. for the last few months we've been sitting down and working out a statement of principles about immigration reform. and today we unveiled those principles. we have a lot of work to do. we still have to write the law and we still have to bring it to the senate to be debated and to be passed. i don't assume for a minute that we're going to have every senator supporting it on both sides of the aisle. that would be too much to consider or to ask. but i know from listening to the speeches that were given by senator sessions of alabama, senator vitter of louisiana, they have many questions that they want to ask about how we approach immigration reform. so let me try, if i can, to speak to some of the basics that are included in our effort. first, when i listened to the senator from
things as we move forward but the politics of this turned upside down according to chuck schumer and i think many people agree to this this bipartisan group of lawmakers together and this is certainly on the fast track if they go as planned. we could see legislation on the table by the spring or summer. incredible events we are witnessing regarding immigration reform. "the cycle" picks up things next. >>> just now, a bipartisan group of republicans unveiled their proposal to revamp our nation's immigration system. the deal includes a path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants now living in the u.s. it prioritizes agricultural workers and immigrant coming here as children but before we start to creating permanent residents, the senators say washington must work on securing the borders and employment verification system that actually works and the undocumented immigrant haves to pass a background check, learn english english, pay back taxes and fines and then go to the back of the line of immigrants to become americans. this is very simila
of the reasons why use the leaders in congress like chuck schumer getting a little heartburn over issues like gun control. it will make it harder for some of their candidate in 2014. guest: the house is an opportunity for democrats. it is not completely out of the possibility range for them to win the house back in 2014. redistricting will make that difficult. some of the issues that may come up -- you not forget healthcare that passed four years ago. it is part of the reason why democrats lost majority. these issues that are more progressive can put some of these members at risk. if they get the house back, and we do not have a divided congress, you will see the president moved to try to get these issues down so his legacy will be he was able to pass some of the progressive stuff he talked about. caller: thank you for taking my call. i wanted to bring it back to people's attention that tomorrow hillary clinton will testify on benghazi. i wanted people to to be aware of it. a lot of times there are things that come up that are not in favor of the administration that are covered up. we lost an int
like durbin and schumer, liberal democrats going along with something with john mccain and lindsey graham, that's a pretty good sign that this will pass easily in the senate. i think one of the most intriguing stories is the fight for credit. i think there are going to be a lot of people headed by marco rubio who will want to get a lot of this credit. lori: on the political side but it also begs the question, right, greg, what happens to the millions of illegal immigrants already living and working in this country? will it put pressure on available jobs and other services like hospital care, et cetera, what do you think?. >> i don't think so. i would prefer to take a positive spin on this entire story. i think if you look at a country like japan which is a demographic train wreck with a huge deficit, much bigger than ours, we're adding lots of people who will pay social security taxes. who will pay other taxes. you're adding to our population i think a workforce that will actually help our fiscal issues far more than a country say like japan. lori: good comparison. help our fiscal
. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. sessions: i was pleased to hear a few days ago senator schumer said that we'd have a budget in the senate. it's been now 1,370 about, give or take a few days, since we've had a budget in the senate, even though plain statutory law requires the senate to have a budget. and now senator murray has followed up yesterday with a quote saying that the senate will -- today, i believe, said we'll again return to regular order and move a budget resolution through the committee and to the senate floor. so the budget committee has not been meeting, has not been doing its duty. as the ranking republican on the budget committee, i've been aghast, really, at the process and have talked about it now for over a thousand days. and so this will be a good step. my colleagues would like to suggest somehow that, well, they decided to do this out of the goodness of their heart and this is the right thing, and on their own they've just decided. but i think the american people have had a bellyful of this. the united states house has repeatedly passed budgets. the senate

sides senate to build on those efforts. >> what do you think happened at that gop retreat? schumer made jokes yesterday they had soft music and massages and so forth. but why -- do you feel that they took a step back in demanding one for one and giving us these three months to address reform? >> i'm not sure i can anticipate what happened at the retreat, but i do think there's a sense of urgency to deal with a lot of major fiscal challenges that we have. i think that's bipartisan. i think it comes to the question of default, democrat or republicans, you have to weigh the consequences, the gravity of fee fault and as verse impact you could have. i think that was part of what was discussed at their retreat, good development. i don't like the fact that we have another challenge coming up in may, but this is certainly preferable to a late february or early march fight that would be -- that would be very difficult. >> yeah. a couple nitty-gritty questions. obviously, a lot of investors still reeling from all the debate over a dividend tax, carried interest tax to what degree do you think tho
quite clearly. but then the question is eric holder wanted to try him in the u.s. and charles schumer got wobbly, everyone ran away from it, they tried and tried and tried. let's say you try him in the u.s. the first day there's going to be a procedural hearing saying you cannot admit the things that you got out of my client when he was being tortured which is the hearing happening tomorrow. so what should they be doing with him. if you bring him into a civilian court and they say you tortureded ksm, the law says you've got to let him free. >> the law doesn't say that. it should in my view, if you torture somebody, they should be released. >> even khalid sheikh mohammed. >> he's not subject to this law. i'm saying what u.s. law should be if i were writing law. the point is it doesn't say that. the point is if someone is tortured, you can't use what you get under torture. they have a lot of things on ksm without having to use what they got during torture. >> so having conversations for ten years -- >> and they have got this all on tape. >> so the point is that khalid sheikh mohammed co

the senate hasn't passed in four year. chuck schumer yesterday on "meet the press" made the announcements that of course democrats would pass a budget this year. if you believe the pressure is not getting to him, then you're not watching. i think the pressure is getting to him. for chuck shumer to say on national tv they're going to pass a budget anyway tells you that the strategy might be working. however, your question is very valid. because i have those same concerns. they have caved every single time, in the last two years, and i have made it very explicit to them that i am with them on this issue because i believe their statements that they're not going to cave again but if they cave again, they're going to have -- they're going to have some problems in the house. they're going to have -- because there's a large number of members of the house, republican house members, who are very dissatisfied with what's happening. and they're believing that the leadership is changing, their gentleman ji, they're changing their negotiation tactics. i'm just optimistic. like i said before. but i thi
. chuck schumer this weekend says, trust us, we're going to pass a budget. they haven't passed a budget in the last four years. so this bill today moving out of the house will force the senate to act, which is something they have not done in the past four years. >> right. finally, congressman, for the most conservative republicans who say even a three-month extension to may 19th is wrong, are you trying to back them off of that ledge and say we need to speak with a unified voice and at least get this done even if it is a short term? >> yeah. look, i think the reason why jim jordan, the former chairman of the roc, the current chairman of the roc, the republican study committee that's the most conservative members of the republican chamber, they have all endorsed this because they realize that if you really want to fix the debt, if you really want to cut spending, you have got to do big things. it can't just be little cuts here and there. so they agree with the strategy here, which is really to move beyond the debt limit discussion right now that we're having and get to the budget discuss
